Description

The Lyndon Baines Johnson Museum of San Marcos will sponsor Spring Shindig 2017 as the second major fund raiser for the Claudia Taylor Johnson Endowment on April 8, 2017 at the Meadows Center at Spring Lake (once known as Aquarena Springs) in San Marcos, Texas.

The evening promises an exciting night of major Texas music, Johnson family favorite ‘fixings,’ catered by Kent Black's Barbecue, local wine and beer tastings and unique raffle items.

The entertainment for the Shindig is world class, headlined by Texas music great Michael Martin Murphey. Opening the evening is country western artist and Boerne, TX native, Ryan Scott Travis.

Recognized as one of the great songwriters in America, Murphey has topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass and Western Music charts, earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations. Through all the chart-jumping and genre-busting, Murphey has remained constant to an honest, sophisticated approach to his songwriting, inspired by and influencing every genre, from classical to cowboy music.

Sponsorships for Spring Shindig 2017, the “Blind Salamander Sponsor” ($2,500) and Texas Wild Rice Sponsor ($1,000), are named for two rare endangered species that live only in the springs and headwaters of the San Marcos River, which originates from hundreds of pure freshwater springs at Spring Lake flowing from the Edwards Aquifer.

The LBJ Museum in historic downtown San Marcos commemorates the early years of President Johnson, who lived in San Marcos and graduated from Southwest Texas State Teachers College (now Texas State) in 1930.

The museum established the “Claudia Taylor Johnson Endowment” in honor of Lady Bird Johnson, the First Lady of the United States from 1963 to 1969. Her courage, devotion and business acumen were constant influences upon Lyndon Johnson’s long and successful political career. She was dedicated to the beautification of the nation’s cities and highways, thereby leaving her own great legacy visible to this day all-across America.

The Claudia Taylor Johnson Endowment will raise funds from donations, gifts and fundraisers. Endowment funds will enable the creation of new Museum exhibits, as well as updates to existing exhibits, allow acquisition of artifacts of historical interest, permit the Museum to host visiting exhibits from other sources, and provide support for Museum programs, special projects and events.
